The war, as for many, was to be an interruption for Hagedorn. For the  first year or so, he was able to carry on working in a normal way and exhibited work both in Paris and in London. Being German, he clearly did not rush to volunteer; instead he became a naturalised Briton, and subsequently married Nelly Stiebel in 1915. As late as March 19I6, he was still exhibiting at the Allied Artists' Association in London......A handful of works are traceable from Hagedorn's war years, and a few in the immediate post-war era. The opportunity to paint could not have presented itself too often and materials were scarce – the paper on which he drew one of his war-time companions is of very poor quality.

Alistair Smith, Manchester's First Modernist, Karl Hagedorn, (1889-1969), p 20
